    Bright Streak Lights Up Night Sky; Likely Sporadic Meteor, Expert Says (NBC Miami)
    South Floridians who happened to be looking in the right place at the right time Sunday night saw one spectacular light show – likely a sporadic meteor.

    The Coast Guard began getting flooded with phone calls about 7:30 p.m., with reports of folks seeing flare-like objects from Jacksonville to Key West, according to Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Sabrina Laberdesque.

    People called in, describing the flares “as orange or red fireballs in the sky,” Laberdesque said. The display was limited to the sky: No injuries were reported, Laberdesque said.

    A sporadic meteor is essentially a rocky object that comes from the asteroid belt, said Mike Hankey, operations manager for the American Meteor Society, based in Genesee, N.Y. The group logged 27 reports within about the first two hours of the event, he said.
